You look at the authors, and if you know the names then you look at a preview. And this is exactly what I did with Tokyo Ghost. It’s written by Rick Remender, who is well known for Secret Avengers, and Uncanny Avengers, and a slew of other excellent independent comics like Low and Black Science and Deadly Class, so that was a big plus, and the colourist is Matt Hollingsworth, who has worked on Hawkeye, Daredevil, and many other big titles, so I was drawn to it. And then I saw the art, by Sean Murphy, a name I didn’t really know, and I knew I had to read it.

There’s a good amount of nudity, a good amount of swearing, a sci-fi story that focuses primarily on the characters, and a great art team. Basically, it’s a Remender book, with classic Remender scenes like this:
